  • [01] House of Commons leader says UK-Cyprus Joint Communiqué important

    House of Commons Leader Andrew Lansley has described a Joint Communiqué by President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades and British Prime Minister David Cameron, issued after their meeting in London, as important, adding that the meeting of the two leaders was very welcome.

    "I hope that as a result, there will be opportunities for my ministerial colleagues in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to set out further details relating to this matter," Lansley said, replying to a question by Conservative MP David Burrowes during a parliament debate.

    Burrowes had asked Lansley to make a statement following the visit of the President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades to London, which resulted in a significant =Joint Communiqué that reaffirmed the active commitment of the Prime Minister and the President to a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem.

    [02] Foreign Minister attends EU Foreign Affairs Council meeting

    Minister of Foreign Affairs Ioannis Kasoulides is participating on Monday in the deliberations of the EU Foreign Affairs Council (FAC), in Brussels.

    Issues on the agenda of the FAC will include, inter alia, the developments in the Southern Neighbourhood, with particular emphasis on Syria and Egypt, the Middle East Peace Process, the EU strategic engagement in Afghanistan and the situation in the Central African Republic, considering a possible crisis management operation in the framework of the Common Security and Defence Policy.

    Furthermore, the EU Foreign Minister will exchange views on EU - Russia relations, in view of the upcoming EU-Russia Summit, which will take place in Brussels between 27-28 January 2014.

    [03] Defence Minister: We do not wish to play the blame game

    Minister of Defence Photis Photiou has said that the Greek Cypriot side does not wish to use the process aiming to reach a Cyprus settlement in order to play the blame game.

    He added however that "we must inform the international community and our EU partners about our views and what is going on, so that the appropriate pressure is exerted on Ankara which has a key role in developments on the Cyprus problem."

    Photiou reiterated that the Greek Cypriot side will not proceed to the negotiating table just for the sake of having negotiations, especially when there is still disagreement on the core issue of sovereignty.
